The game basically plays itself at that point.

There are many reasons that people do not like double xp. What irks me is that people get so upset that some people merely ask to be able to turn off the double xp for their character when this has no effect on the rest of the players that do want to participate in double xp weekends.



As you can see there really is a segment of the gaming community that does not like to be leveled artificially or faster than necessary.



yes you are apparently. I repeat myself in the hopes that one day I will get a reply from the developers as to whether or not they will allow those of us that do not like double xp to be able to turn it off for the duration so that we can enjoy the game like it was designed to be played.



It is actually 80% if I am unsubbed and that is actually welcome, but during double xp weekends I get double xp whether I am subscribed or not! Rested xp is tolerable, but I prefer to not have it if given the option.

Another alternative is to be able to turn off xp altogether. That would be a great option too. I would be willing to pay a little extra to be able to turn off xp gains.



I am not against double xp weekends! I just don't want to be a part of it. I want to be able to debuff my double xp buff. You can't please everyone, but this is an easy fix to implement and won't affect anyone that does want to participate in double xp. A version already exists with subscribers versus non subscribers.
Nono, because the feature of turning off experience would only do one thing: Twinks ruining low level PvP constantly.
Really, just play your lvl 55 for a couple of days and stop beeing unreasonable. Heck, take a break from the game if you dont like the event. Its such a short time that what you are demanding here is ridiculed by everyone because it is ridiculous. You are not forced to play as you say. Its an option to level of character or not. If you play your max level character you are not affected by it. Surely its not much to ask for. Do it for the rest of us, will you?

The last time the Gree event was live I didn't make it to level 50 in time to try it out. I, for one, have been waiting anxiously for it to come back so I can see it and start leveling that rep. So be surprised if you must, but I have yet to even see the Gree event, better yet to max it. Thank you, Devs, for bringing it back!

Look, I just don't want to be a part of double xp weekends. I have one character that is level 55. You are saying I should not play any of my other characters for the duration? What about all the other times of the year when this goes on? I knew when they first started doing this that it was going to happen more and more often. I do not do pvp either. I just want to enjoy the game play the way it was meant to be enjoyed. Double xp is an event like many others. The only difference is that I have no choice and must participate if I want to play the game at all. Even if I do play my level 55 character I still get double legacy xp and I prefer to get my legacy xp the traditional way.

I will take a break from the game like I have every other time double xp has been implemented, but I didn't like it. How is asking for the option to turn off double xp (let alone turning off xp gains altogether) an unreasonable request? I don't care if other people get double xp during these weekends. Enjoy! I just want to enjoy the storylines the normal way without the game carrying my hand like I'm some 8 year old that is playing his first mmo.

This is why I subscribe by the month now so that I am not burned like I was when I subscribed for 6 months and then had to endure nearly a month of double xp weekends. I am glad to be given forewarning that these things are coming so that I can be sure to be unsubscribed for the duration so that I do not feel like I am wasting my money. Some of those double xp weekends can go on for a few weeks.

Again, how does my leveling at the normal rate while everyone else gets double xp weekends make life so miserable for everyone or anyone?

The majority of this game's development time has been to support PvE, what exactly is wrong with PvP getting some attention?
